Singapore has large transit airport and a lot of people stop over in the city for day or two before their travel to other country.
You expect it should be easy to find affordable accommodation out there, but when I started look for place to stay it end up not being so easy task.
I am not talking about hotels. I was looking just for bed in hostel. Of course it is a lot of hostels out there, but it is tough find one in good location, good price, clean and quite. Don’t even look at cheapest hostels, as it most likely will be dorms with 10 or more beds. Or it is on noisy street, or…
I was getting frustrated and tired of reading reviews and thought won’t be able find anything, but luckily one of my friends was traveling to Singapore just couple weeks before me and after staying in some hostels, finally chose and recommended YMCA International House. Which I want to recommend for other travelers too.
Great location – on Orchad Road, close to MRT, small dorm room. By small I mean, only 4 beds in the room, bathroom in the room (yes, it is not shared), good food. Only con was – pool was on renovation. But I didn’t have time use it anyway, too many thing to see in the city. Here are some pictures from my room I was staying:
Enjoy your stay in Singapore!
